ThisIsMyAccount thank you for the suggestions i love The Meathook Massacre but its a bit too costly (price tag i mean) for now. may add it later once the lady gets used to the mechanics of the game and deck. I do like dark prophecy though, im gonna find somewhere to put that in there. i want to keep the last hope in because of graveyard interaction with bloodghast.

SefTheReject i also appreciate your suggestion as i will try and find a home for Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord theres just too many vampires not to have him, although he doesnt do alot for our devotion. Gary is in the deck as a late game wincon so his slowness is kinda the point.

I think the deck is fine but I just want to give my suggestions for your consideration.

So, I would recommend you remove -2 Liliana, the Last Hope for +1 The Meathook Massacre and +1 Dark Prophecy. These cards are better for your devotion and are also more Strange and Unusual. You can also probably -1 land for +1 Inquisition of Kozilek.

Also, I think fitting in 1 or 2 Bitterblossom for the main or side so you can grind just a little better. Then, Tymaret, Chosen from Death plus Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip can be an interesting combination if you are really committed to black devotion.

Chasmolinker Thanks duderino! Glad you like it! The original idea stemmed from when a bunch of friends and I did our own version of a Kaldheim draft together, and I pulled all these elves that wiped the floor with everyone. Needless to say, it was a fun night lmao.

I was using Doom Blade as a form of removal but recently came across Infernal Grasp as a better form of removal. That Plague Engineer is nasty lmao, and DB definitely wouldn't be able to remove it, but with my recent upgrade to IG, I think I have a good chance to address it.

I love the ETB on The Meathook Massacre, but I hadn't considered it since I had so many GY retrievals, reanimation, and mass reanimation spells.

I'd replace Mobilize with Copperhorn Scout. The cmc is the same, and scout is an elf for when that matters, and the scout can be used repeatedly. The problem with Vitalize and Mobilize is that they are one-offs and thus often low impact, but at least the former is an instant allowing you to use it during your opponents' turns for a surprise move.

Cards like Torment of Hailfire are just better than things like Gruesome Scourger and Radiant Epicure which at 5cmc will often just not do enough to justify the cost. It's always good to think of the floor of the card and not just the ceiling. If you have one other creature out and play those cards it will feel bad. With Hailfire, even if you only cast it for five each opponent is going to have to choose between sacrificing up to three permanents or taking up to nine to the face, which will be a good return on investment.

Living Death is especially amazing with Syr Konrad, the Grim and can double as a board wipe and win con. If you cast it with Syr Konrad out, first all creatures in all graveyards will do damage to each opponent as they are exiled from the graveyard, then opponents will take damage for every creature killed and put into the graveyard. Its just crazy powerful. Also, if you have a sac outlet you can always sac all of your stuff first so you can get everything back. Its just unbeatable.

I feel like Throne of the God-Pharaoh could do some work but probably fits better in a different deck, but that's just me.

The Meathook Massacre is pricey in money for a reason- its sort of a catch all. It can be a boardwipe, or not, but either way its an extra aristocrat effect of a permanent type people remove the least, so its good!

I'll post some other thoughts on the deck page itself, but I wanted to answer your above questions here.

My least favorite cards in the deck:

Tales of Master Seshiro  Flip (low impact for ) Temple of the False God (not great at ramping and only gives colorless) Thoughtrender Lamia (this one is okay, but discard is not necessarily the most potent interaction) Marauding Blight-Priest

My favorite cards: Bastion of Remembrance The Meathook Massacre Extinguish All Hope Blightcaster Setessan Champion Doomwake Giant Dryad of the Ilysian Grove

Let me know what you think of each suggestion...

Bitterblossom/Reassembling Skeleton + Contamination = Fun times

You really need more token production such as...

Grave Titan - ETB and attack token production

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Easy to trigger, creates a token to defend itself

Liliana, Dreadhorde General > Lili Ves - Static ability/draw, token production, removal and wincon

More Artifact ramp would help such as....

Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Jeweled Lotus all put in work.

Additional Draw would really help like....

Syphon Mind - Cheap $, each opponent discard 1, you draw 3. Good value all around

Necropotence - When you need cards, you get cards.

Phyrexian Arena - Simple and easy

Read the Bones - Least impactful but the scry is really clutch

Various.....

Yawgmoth's Will - Best card black can buy. Don't sleep on this

Dismember - I've found it useful, I like the ability to kill most creatures with 1 mana

The Meathook Massacre - While unsure if this is the best fit, it seems to go well with your tokens. Plus, the lifegain helps offset some of black's lifeloss cards

Damnation - When things need to die

I have several ideas of cuts if you would like to hear them. Looking forward to your response
